Place Taking Place: Poetics of Embodied Mixed Reality


Wednesday, October 11, 4:30 p.m.
Sharp Building, 37 S. Wabash Ave., room 327

Presented by Judd Morrissey, Assistant Professor, as part of his contract review toward tenure in the department of Art & Technology Studies.

This artist's talk will navigate the emerging territories and queer liminalities of a practice that integrates language, code, bodies, and technologies that capture and transform space. The presentation will be focused on recent and in-progress augmented reality performances and will be followed by a Q&A.
